Keep reading to find out how to care for your skin after a Vampire Facelift in order to get the most out of this treatment.
How does a Vampire Facelift work?
The PRP facelift, or Vampire Facelift, uses your body's own blood to encourage natural collagen production in the face. Platelets, proteins, and growth factors are extracted from the blood to help with skin and collagen regeneration.
Ageless Aesthetics' Vampire Facelift involves three parts. The first step is a blood draw from your arm (which feels like any other blood draw). Our team purifies this blood to extract the platelet-rich plasma.
Next, you'll discuss your aesthetic goals with the team to choose the dermal filler that promises the best results. We'll choose and inject a dermal filler based on whether you're interested in plumping, smoothing, or lifting areas of the face.
The final step is the reinjection of the PRP into the face. This may sound intimidating, but most patients do fine with a topical anesthetic. If you're concerned, you can always talk to our team about pain management or anxiety.
How do I care for my skin after a Vampire Facelift?
Aftercare is crucial to getting the best results from a Vampire Facelift. If you want your results to last the typical 6 – 12 months, it's essential to follow instructions from the team. They will be customized to your particular skin type and the filler used.
In general, recovery time after the Vampire Facelift is minimal. The filler will produce some immediate results but may leave behind some bruising in the following days. You should notice an improvement in complexion within a week as any redness, skin peeling, and swelling subside.
Over the next 4 – 6 weeks, your skin will respond to the PRP by producing more collagen and elastin. This will result in tightening of the skin and further reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will also look brighter and smoother.
For the best results, it's crucial to limit sun exposure following treatment. Your skin will be sensitive for about a week, but it's best to limit unprotected exposure to the sun, in general, to keep your skin healthy.
You'll be able to wash your face within one or two days of treatment, but you'll need to use a gentle cleanser and steer clear of both chemical and physical exfoliants for a few weeks.
You'll be able to get back to your regular routine right away, but you will be asked to refrain from exercise for about one week as your body heals and regenerates.
